Mindful Living by Miraval – Book Review
When the stresses of life start to overwhelm you, do you dream of melting away your troubles at a world class health resort and spa? I do – so when the opportunity to visit the world class Miraval Resort & Spa through their latest book, Mindful Living by Miraval, presented itself to me, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to see what a visit to their peaceful Tucson spa would be like.
Miraval is all about mindfulness. Miraval defines mindfulness as “a conscious approach to being in the present moment – an elevated awareness of one’s surroundings and also of oneself.” As you’ll see throughout the book, the pursuit of Mindful Living permeates everything Miraval does.
Miraval’s book, Mindful Living, not only shows you what a stay with them would be like – but shows you how to bring mindfulness into your daily life!
Mindful Living is divided into 12 chapters – one for each month. Each month has a theme: January is for Beginnings; February is for Heart; March is for Meditation; and so forth. In each chapter, different aspects of Miraval’s philosophies and treatments are highlighted. You’ll find information on the health, dietary and exercise regimens they prescribe; the exotic spa treatments that they offer; the Eastern spiritual practices they engage in, and a whole lot more!
There are a number of things I liked about this book:
- I enjoyed the beautiful photography and the wide range of interesting topics.
- I appreciated the book’s well-organized structure, which encourages and promotes personal change.
- I especially loved the mouthwatering recipes!
From a publication perspective, Mindful Living by Miraval is a beautifully produced book that will satisfy those interested in alternative health and spirituality topics.
It will also make a great souvenir for Miraval spa-goers who hope to extend the practice of mindfulness into their everyday lives.
